Lexus is thinking about entering the subcompact market.
Despite previous reports that Lexus had no intentions of producing a car smaller than the current CT 200h, the Japanese automaker seems to be reconsidering its position in the growing subcompact segment, especially in Europe. So it’s no surprise that the company chose Geneva to unveil its LF-SA concept, which measures in at just 135 inches nose to tail. For reference, that’s nine inches shorter than the Chevrolet Spark.
But still, the city car concept is capable of seating four despite its dimensions while carrying a striking design that would set it apart from the rest of its competitors. It’s unlikely the aggressive style would make it to production, but it does preview the direction Lexus is heading to capture the attention of new-car buyers.
